language selector in translation MOD

Post by tintinux »

Hi

Thanks for this module, which will help our forum which is intended to help ukrainian refugees in our french city.

The phpBB forum languages I have installed are (only) en, fr, ru and uk (standing for ukrainian)

After I installed and activated the translation MOD, with your language pack for additional languages, we see only : French, German and Spanish in the language selector. Not Ukrainian Russian and not even English

German and Spanish are not installed and useless on the forum. I don't understand why they are visible.
Google Translate works fine to translate to and from French or English to Ukrainian or Russian. Why aren't they available ?

In addition, when I select German or Spanish, a french text is not translated to these languages. It remains in french, and only the phpBB labels are translated, which is useless.

What am I missing ?
Thanks for your help.

BTW : if you need translators to french or ukrainian, I can find some...

Oups... I have found what to change in the ACP.

But why not selectiing, by default, the actually installed languages ?

And perhaps, when possible, the possibility to keep the language order as defined.
Today Russian is before Ukrainian, and not all the ukrainians will like it...

I am glad you have found the ACP settings. You have to decide what languages you need yourself. For example you may only have one language installed on your board but require several translation options.

I am afraid that the languages appear alphabetically, and can not be changed. The Google Translator is now entering its End Of Life phase and soon Google will no longer support it.

Good luck with your excellent project

If you wish to translate any of my extensions, please feel free to do so. Some already have a French translation but I do not think that any have been translated into Ukraine. Every extension's topic has a list of existing translations within the Translation Pack.
